I have a OEM factory turbo timer on my 951 Porsche and
none of what u stated below applies or is remotely
true. The turbo timer keeps fluids ciiculating thru
the turbo AFTER the engine is OFF !!!

In fact, the the timer regulates the duration of the
cool down based on how hard I've run the car. I can
HEAR the fan an fluids circulating after I turn OFF
the ignition key on my Porsche.

I don't where u got that stuff (about turbo timers)
that you are are spewing as fact! As far as Porsche is
concerned, your statements are DEAD WRONG!

Taking the shared history of Audi/Porsche technology -
It would be safe to assume that an Audi turbo timer
would operate the same way. Several listers have made
mention of a 'cool down' fan as being part of the S4
engine platform.
